I would have to add Freddie Patek to this list (recent issues aside). He was about my height when I was in 9th grade and he made me believe that a little guy could make it to the bigs. (I gave up that hope at age 52). He had a tremendous arm for someone his size.

Brad - there are no "recent issues" with the Freddie Patek who played for the Pirates, Royals, etc. The guy arrested in Texas was 47 years old - far too young to be the Freddie Patek who played for the Buccos.
